I love this place, mostly because I have not been able to find Thai Roti bread anywhere else. But the foot is fresh and tasty. Sometimes overpriced, particularity for mains, but the service is great.

First of all, the food was nice. We eat Thai often and this was not the best Thai we've been to in the area, but certainly not the worst. Be warned however, prices are very high, probably due to the location on the river. I'd say around 30% higher than our favourite Thai restaurant and portions were also smaller. None the less, it was a nice meal, but what spoilt it for us was that a 12.5% service charge was added by default to the bill (for a table of 3). The service was fine and we would have left a tip (usually 10%), but I hate it being added by default (especially at 12.5%). For this reason alone, we will not be returning any time soon.

The kitchen and the chef are making a very good job daily. Is not the first time I'm visiting the restaurant and I have tried all the plates which are amazing if you love spicy food... Also don't forget to try your favorite cocktail with an alternative Thai way. Strongly recommend..

We had our best meal so far at Busaba Kingston, we ordered mainly from the Thai newyear specials menu and the food was excellent. It was quite an expensive meal but good value considering how good the food was.

Food was mediocre, not spicy enough or hot enough in temperature. The service wasn't rude but wasn't friendly and was slow, every time we needed something we had to get up and get the attention of the waiting staff. Didn't crack a mile once. Wouldn't recommend or visit again
